SMITH ROCK TEC
Technical endurance challenge
Come explore flowing single track, meandering rivers, and high desert forest as you race to collect all the checkpoints before time runs out! With semi-technical foot and bike trails and lots of elevation gain/loss - this race packs a stout 5-hour punch. Moderately easy navigation gives way to an optional orienteering section that includes jagged ridges, scree slopes, and climbing/rappelling checkpoints. This race is suitable for even novice racers, although some technical ability on the bikes/foot/ropes is recommended and will likely determine the winners. As always more difficult points will be "PRO" and optional.
